Our Mission

The American Academy Larnaca is committed to promoting academic excellence and personal growth within a caring community that celebrates human kindness.

As a non-profit institution, our school is committed to delivering a holistic educational experience that begins in the classroom and extends far beyond it. At the heart of the school's philosophy is its motto "to grow and to serve" which embodies the true ethos and culture of our learning environment. Our students grow intellectually, emotionally, socially and morally, and are encouraged to serve their community actively and generously. Our school ethos is reinforced in our unique management structure; we are a private, non-elitist, co-educational independent school that is uniquely run by its own graduates.

Let's talk about education
It's not just about what goes on in the classroom

The American Academy Larnaca is the kind of school that makes you fall in love with learning all over again.

What makes this school great is its people. Whether you're a student, a parent, a teacher or an alumnus, your opinions, actions and passions make up the very fabric of the school's rich history and secure its continuing legacy into the future. Of course, to an outsider the American Academy Larnaca is a private secondary school, but it's much more than that. It is also a community that reaches out its branches across the entire island and the world, today and across many decades.

We believe in creating environments that allow students to become excited about learning, curious to step out of their comfort zones and willing to serve their communities. And I'm particularly happy to be part of a community that celebrates education, in all its many forms.
